Go for the goals!

Barbara Kuzyk; CDF Canada; Malawi 

“This volunteer opportunity allowed me to use skills and help farmers transform from an association of individuals to a business cooperative.  “ 

Barb’s role with our partners is to provide mentorship to local agricultural cooperatives on business development. They work together to create strategic plans to achieve specific goals that will:    

  • Increase Wealth and Food Security through the Integrated Co-operative Business Model.  
  • Ensure cooperatives are well informed of their roles and allow them to make inclusive decisions.  
  • Increase access to financial services collectively (and individually). 
  • Allow them to collectively market their products to ensure a long-term sustainable financial wellbeing.  

The experience is very rewarding and allows Barb to witness first-hand how cooperatives can change the financial well-being of individual farmers.
